While I loved the concept of this book, I couldn't help but try to determine its appropriate audience while I was reading it. The book comes complete with the true Shakespearian language that only I would say late middle schoolers would be able to comprehend, I found the illustrations to be highly juvenile which might turn off readers. On that note, I love that this age group is being introduced to the wonderment of Shakespeare at all and found this a beautiful way to make it happen.
